24 is back!!!--The power of Jack Bauer! Kiefer Sutherland flanked by ladies in red
dailymail ^ | 3 May 2014 | Iona Kirby

Posted on 05/03/2014 1:15:36 PM PDT by dennisw

It has been almost four years since the final episode of 24 aired.

24: Live Another Day will be set in London and will begin airing in the US on May 5 and the UK two days later.

The show will follow Jack attempting to stop the assassination of President James Heller while battling CIA agents tracking him, along with the help of Chloe ,who is now working underground with a high-profile hacker.

Kiefer is nervous that the revival won’t live up to fans’ expectations and recently told the Daily Telegraph: ‘The fear of not having it fulfil all of its potential is massive.

“Hope it will return with significantly less stupid than the previous season.”

Definitely needed a time out. With this re-boot in the JugEars era how politically correct will they be?

I hope they respect the FACT that the only terrorism here in the U.S. are Islamists.

But I suspect one of the episodes will be reflective of the terrorists who backed off the BLM at the Bundy ranch, (didn't Filthy Harry call them terrorists).

That is not true regarding a Presidential assassination attempt. Unfortunately every President has been a target since before Lincoln.
I would bet there could be thousands or so threats against every President a year in at least modern times.

I have seen the President's cars pass my home several times as they have been on the way to elsewhere to beg for money.
#1 In your neighborhood suddenly a lot of people you don't know show up all over the place jogging and hang out.
#2 Cell phones are disrupted and as the Presidential motorcade goes by there is always one car with what looks like a giant thimble on top which IMO blocks all transmissions as he passes.
I think the concern is that someone might throw a backpack or suitcase with something dangerous and hit a trigger to blow people up as they drive by.
It is IMO dangerous being President. I think the secret service does their job and as much as one may love one President and dislike another, none of us really want harm to come to anyone in the office of the President. The protectors IMO have a rough job.

Actually, since they've killed everyone else off and it was the director's stated intention to murder every major character except Jack at some point, I'm thinking Chloe bites the dust in the next twelve hours...

What I find strange about the show is that much of the talent involved in 24 are very much socialist or marxist.

Keifer is a great actor but his Canadian roots and family are all as far left as you can go imo.

Yvonne Strahovski was v good in Dexter. She's a looker!!!>>>>wikipedia>>>>>

.

Yvonne Strahovski was born in Werrington Downs,[3] a suburb of Sydney, as Yvonne Jaqueline Strzechowski, to Bożena and Piotr Strzechowski.[4] Her parents had emigrated from Tomaszów Mazowiecki, Poland. Strahovski speaks Polish and English. She adopted the more phonetic spelling of Strahovski as her stage name at Chuck, which was at producer Josh Schwartz's behest for the sake of easier pronunciation. Strahovski's father is an electronic engineer, and her mother works as a lab technician.[5] Strahovski started acting when she played Viola in a school production of Twelfth Night.[6] She spent her high school years attending Santa Sabina College, Strathfield. She graduated from University of Western Sydney's Theatre Nepean in 2003 and co-founded a small theater company.[7][8]

Not many people know a guy tried to shoot Andy Jackson twice. Both his pistols misfired.

Jackson, being the guy he was, then beat the tar out of the assassin with his cane.

She was also very good in Chuck as well; most beautiful actresses do not have good comedic timing, even in the straight-man role. She and Adam Baldwin [a conservative] really carried the show. Don't know about her politics, but she is a vegan, so odds are...

Yvonne Strahovski is awesome! Loved her on Chuck and saw her give a terrific performance on Broadway in December 2012. She played Lorna Moon in the revival of Golden Boy got some really outstanding reviews from critics. She’s stunning in person.

Expectations are low. The original series fell off drastically in the last couple of seasons.

But, the FR live threads were awesome!

When they forced out Joel Surnow, the show basically died.

I’ll watch this one. I like that they’ve done away with the 24-hour format/gimmick. But my expectations are low.

Once upon a time, I almost got to be an extra in a movie with Kiefer Sutherland, long before '24'. The movie was called '1969', and part of it was filmed in the town I lived in.

The article in the local paper said it was going to be a movie about hippies.

When the company came to town, they put out a casting call for extras. I had pretty long hair at the time, so I thought, 'Cool, I'll go be a hippie in a movie.'

But when I got there, I was told they were actually looking for clean-cut preppie types. So no extra role for me.

The filming took place in Statesboro GA at the Courthouse. Statesboro is in Bulloch County, and part of the film takes place in a 'Culloch County'. So they covered the 'B' on the Courthouse with a 'C'.

‘The fear of not having it fulfil all of its potential is massive.

I can understand that but for the diehard fans such as myself who don't constantly nitpick every aspect of this show, I'm looking forward to it and will likely enjoy every episode..........

As for Chloe, any REAL man would be honored and love to have her undying loyalty......

I'm kinda glad that "24" took a few years off since absence makes the heart grow fonder.

Looking forward to it!

Kiefer comes from (I believe) a politically famous far left socialist family of Canada. Kind of like an ever more far left version of the Kennedys. I believe some of his family have been elected to public office over there which is not in general happening here regarding Hollywierd.

Actually your assessment of the program is wrong as evidenced by Rush's comments about the writers of the past series.........

If you have to be so anal-retentive as to try and figure out the politics of any actors/actresses participating in any entertainment venue, you sir have a major problem!

But then again, that seems to be a trait of internet political junkes who have no other life than their computer and TV's........

Oh, by the way, 24 was my favorite show and I already had read about the far left history of the Sutherland family long before the show aired.
I personally had to overcome the Sutherland family political history in order to watch the show though. I started watching by the 4th year then got seasons 1-3 to catch up on borrowed DVDs.
